Brian Williams: TSA Groped Me
Tuesday, January 4, 2011
In the last quarter of 2010, we heard plenty of horror stories about folks being “groped” as they went through airport security (remember the “don’t touch my junk” guy?).
Being a network news anchor doesn’t allow one any special exemptions, apparently.
“Air travel is such a joy in this country,” Williams told Letterman. “You get the enhanced schmegeggy right there. … That’s an aviation term. For some reason coming back, I always get it at [Los Angeles International Airport]. I get nailed.”
Letterman, confused, needed elaboration. “What are you saying? What happens there?”
“They go, they go right in. This new thing, they go right after Dave and the twins. … Either you go in the little thing and you put your arms up and parade around, and somebody in a booth somewhere looks at you naked through your clothing, or you can get the prod of your schmegeggy.”
